BOCEP thank the following people and organisations – some for the support they have provided us, and some for the information and insight they offer.
Lost Boys of Australia Website
Uprooted from their homes and families in South Sudan, the Lost Boys were subjected to torture and danger as they were forced to leave their country of birth, and make the arduous journey to refugee camps in Kenya and Ethiopia; the Lost Boys of Sudan are a crucial part of understanding the plight of South Sudan and why the Bor Orphanage & Community Education Project is so important.
Kids’ Own Publishing
Kids’ Own Publishing have worked closely with BOCEP in the production of our first book – Donkeys Can’t Fly on Planes – a collection of real stories written and illustrated by children from the South Sudanese community, detailing their thoughts and feelings as South Sudanese refugee children living in Australia.
In 2014 K.O. and BOCEP released a second book, ‘In My Kingdom’, a collection of stories from the adults. These stories, written by the parents, are the stories they want their chidren to hear.
A third book containing the more sensitive stories of initiation, child birth and cultural practices, is set to be released early in 2015.
